You know about the little thumbscrews on the sides of the carbs that raise the slides, right? I don't want to assume, and I certainly don't want to insinuate you wouldn't, but.... Well...... I kinda made that mistake....

Lol yes .. I've turned them all the way in which should be opening the slide correct (high idle) and all way out close the slide (low idle). When I took off the pods it seemed to want to idle but still died. The rich problem I'm thinking I might have float stuck or floats need set again . Small issues but feeling good about where it's heading

Pulled carbs off bike to pull them apart to make sure all Jets are clean. Reasons for doing this is it sat on the stand for a while and had gas in it. When I started back with new Jets I cleaned them out but think not good enough. So I could have a clogged jet ? Will see

i have seen idle issues with slide carbs if the slides are too high at idle.  it's a bit hard to work out and fix when it won't idle at all, but the lower the slides can be the better ime.

Need more time ....more time !!!!

Other then that ... WTF Photobucket you ass wipes ? All most all my pics are now hostage till I pay up UF#*Ks ! Some of those pics I can't get back you bucket of ass hats !

Sorry have to rant ! I'll try and figure out what to do . Last thing I've done is clean carbs inside and out . Will look to see if slides are at lowest and floats are right .
